    Not really. The ones most people run are not DOT approved.

    HMMM, I wasn't aware of that. I have been wondering whether anyone ever gets pulled over for running them, or cited for it after being pulled over for something else. I'm tempted to get a set and just keep a monthly torque log in my glove box. Do you have any thoughts on this? Do you run beadlocks? Thanks for your input!

    I don't know about Pennsylvania, but the CHP would not care if you kept a maintenance log... If they are going to write you the ticket for beadlocks, then they write the ticket.

    I think the fashion trend with most aftermarket wheels having the fake bolts on them has desensitized cops (all people) to the appearance of beadlocks, most people couldn't tell you if they are real or not.

    It's a gamble...

    As mentioned, I don't think a vast majority of beadlocks are technically legal anywhere. There are only a couple that I know of that are DOT approved.

    I read somewhere online that if you are involved in an accident and it is discovered that there was a ring failure, a torque log MIGHT save your ass. But I guess if beadlocks aren't legal, the torque log would only be good for wiping your ass...

    Back in the day, beadlocks were a lot riskier but on most newer beadlocks, a ring failure is pretty unlikely but always possible.
